What terrifies and excites me about becoming a lawyer? Lots of things. In the spirit of purging fear and inviting the new, here they are…
Had an epiphany this morning. (Sidebar: I used to constantly have epiphanies, like, every day – is that because I was in my twenties??)
Epiphany goes: Me in bed, letting sunlight stream across my face, lingering in the liminal space between starting and avoiding my day, and almost like light finding its way into a crack in my brain, I realized something.
If we were to assume the path towards becoming our authentic self was logical, straight as well as free of distractions, serendipity and magic (it`s none of the above), if we were to assume we could make this journey happen through using our will and our left brain, if all of this were indeed the case….
… which we will assume for the sake of argument….
then we could identify a “negative” and a “positive” route to authenticity (these terms are not intended as a value judgment but as a description of how the route relates to content).
